organic law. and saying that the constitution could not possibly have anticipated our every governing question. i invite you to imagine if you will, just close your eyes and just imagine the right wing . . >>> welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the conservatives are whining about president obama's speech. it's just too liberal. i say welcome to the mainstream. let's get to work. >> it's morning again in america. >> the era of liberalism is back. >> the country is awake to the new center left america, and conservative elites can't stand it. >> the republican agenda in his mind props up white privilege. >> tonight katrina vanden heuvel on president obama and the official end of the reagan era. none of it means anything if the obama agenda can't get through the senate. senator jeff merkley of oregon is here with the latest breaking news on filibuster reform. >>> plus one of the best golfers in the world is losing it over his tax rate. >> of all the nerve! >> we'll fact check phil mickelson's ridiculous claim. >> i owe you nothing! >>> and banks got bailed a out and we got sold out.

'm a liberal, and i'm going to govern as a liberal, and i won. so there. >> the mayor of cable tv believes it's proof that america will be torn apart. >> rather than focusing on america's problems like exploding debt and a weak economy, mr. obama put forth that the nation's top priority must be impose social justice. so it is quite clear that the president is willing to go down in history as a crusader for social justice, no matter what happens to the economic fabric of the country. >> you know, i think all these conservatives are forgetting about another president who transformed the country, and he is i think one of their favorites, ronald reagan. remember that guy? inherited a population deeply unhappy with the direction of the country and the economy. he established mainstream conservative government by his second inauguration, a majority of the country believed in his message. >> we ask things of government that government was not equipped to give. we yielded authority to the national government that property belonged to states or to local governments or to the people themselves. we allo

of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. this was a big deal. in the 57th formal inauguration of an american president, barack obama delivered one of the most progressive speeches ever given by a commander in chief. with more than a million people in attendance, the president took the ceremonial oath of office on the steps of the united states capitol. president obama did not set out to lower expectations of his second term. instead, he established the goals of a progressive agenda. >> my fellow americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it, so long as we seize it together. for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. >> themes of unity, togetherness, and helping our fellow man rang throughout the president's second inaugural address. he did not shy away from our moral obligation to each other either

equality on this, on the heels of this speech? >> well, i think he tries -- the government has already under obama intervened against the defense of marriage act in court and filed briefs against it. there is only so much that he can do. a lot of it is up to the supreme court. but at a symbolic level, which is tremendously important in these things, he has elevated it to a place it has not been before in this country. >> professor, you're thoughts o the speech today. how did this speech differ from the one he gave four years ago? >> well, i think there were a few more shout outs to policy. it was less rhetorical and more about the sort of vision that he has for what he wants to try to get done in this term, but also acknowledging at least a little bit the coalition of people that put this re-election in place, you know, to really address women directly, and to talk about seneca falls, and to have that as a sort of centerpiece that we're talking about tonight is very, very important. remember, women voters, not only do they vote somewhat overwhelmingly for this president, but as we look

. iraqi weapons of mass destruction. we were told by every level of government here there were iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war, the invasion by the united states. we are still searching for those weapons. they didn't exist. >> clearly, the strangest behavior of the day came from senator rand paul of kentucky, the tea party darling, the leader of the tea party used the hearing to grandstand and advance his political positions. >> had i been president at the time and i found that you did not read the cables from benghazi, you did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieve you'd of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> tough talk from president paul. his question to secretary clinton should help get to the bottom of things, don't you think? >> now, my question is the u.s. involved with any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling, anyhow transferring weapons to turkey out of libya? >> to turkey? >> it just gets weirder from there. >> i will have to take that question for the record. nobody's ever raised that with me. >> i

60 votes. you can't govern effectively under those conditions. what we should have said, if you want to oppose something, go to the floor. talk and talk and talk. but when you're finished, it's going to be 51 votes that makes the decision. >> senator, you heard some of the comments from my radio show. it was all over liberal talk radio today. it's all in the social media. i mean, how much more abuse must the democrats take in this process before they finally adopt meaningful filibuster reform? i mean, we've got, you know, this ruling by the court in washington on some of the appointments of president obama. you can be sure that mitch mcconnell is probably behind closed doors, smiling about that. he is not there to help the president. but the question is why don't the democrats realize what is happening here? they may realize it, but they're afraid to move forward on it. and people are frustrated in this country. this is what they voted for. >> no, ed, you know, i agree with you. that's why i did not vote for that package. and i think what everybody has got to understand, and you've m

military personnel get the recognition they deserve from the government. but they're getting trashed by right-wing talkers. former marine goldie taylor will stay and weigh in with us on that. >>> and we are back. earlier this week i spoke with martin smith, producer and correspondent for "frontline's" the untouchables, a documentary that explores why no high-level wall street executives have gone to jail in connection with the 2008 financial crisis. i have to say, watching the program i was totally stunned. there seems to be no shortage of whistleblowers offering evidence that lenders knowingly perpetrated and ignored fraud. but no one is being held accountable. well, just two days after the documentary "the untouchables" aired, lanny breuer is stepping down. though the justice department and breuer declined to comment, it looks like "frontline" struck a nerve. the justice department should embrace this documentary and use the information found in it. breuer was soft on wall street and failed to enforce the law as i see it. but just because he failed doesn't mean it's too late. holde
